Delegation – Reasons to do it
Delegation is very much about mind set. We often get to the stage where we are overwhelmed because of our success or our “busyness” or because of our worry about giving things to other people:
- Will they do a good job?
- Will they do it as I want to do it?
- Will it have an effect on my business in a bad way?
- What if I don’t reach my target because it all goes wrong?
And here’s the thing – Not delegating can cause us to take our eye of the goals that we want to achieve because we can’t focus and we get ineffective.
And it can stop us living in our zone of genius- a term from the book called “The Big Leap” by Gay Hendricks – a highly recommended read.
I often talk about this in my mastermind groups because as people and businesses grow and life gets really busy, it’s something that can help people to take a step back and think more about their life and business and just create that space to flourish.
Sometimes people have delegated in the past – myself included- and it’s not worked out. And it can put you off.
Sometimes we delegate the wrong things and don’t realise until it has gone wrong.
Have a watch of the video beow and then use the tool that I have given you below
I have attempted many times to delegate and now delegate my account, some of my Social Media, my videoing, my web tasks – oh and the cooking! It has taken some time and been painful , but I have now grown my business by finding the right people to do these things.
So if you think that you want to do or should delegate, there are 3 things to ask yourself:
- What shouldn’t I be doing?
- What can’t I do?
- What don’t I want to do?
Brainstorm the answers to these three things and then pick one thing to delegate this month and just do it.
If you are struggling to do this becuase your unconscious mind, which is there to keep you safe is bipping away in your ear going “It will all go wrong”, “I can’t trust other people”, or No-one does it as well as me”, then book a free half hour session or send me a message on my contact page and let’s talk about it!
Go from Overwhelm to underwhelm and Freedom
Go from Lack of focus to being totally Focused
Go from Doubt and stuck to Certainty and Freedom
Go from Not reaching your Goals to Reaching your Goals
Until next week,
Dr Bridget, delegating your success to you!
